    today at the gym i saw someone benching about 230, but when he took the bar down for reps, his rom was about 3 inches, i dont know why people even bother exercising if they arent even going to do the exercise right.

    i made a thread similar to this about a month ago. but the guy i seen doing this had an enourmous chest.
    ppl who replied said he was concentrating on his chest than his other muscle groups:dunno:

    Was it 3 inches because of a big arch or big gut, or 3 inches with his back flat on the bench

    That's nothing, my grade12 weight training teacher said we'll get kicked out of the class if we bring our elbows past 90° on bench.

    If he was, that would mean that benching with piss poor ROM is the way to go.

    I saw pretty much the exact same thing yesterday. The guy benching probably weighed 170, and was being spotted by some little kid who might have weighed 100 soaking wet. They rack up 3 plates and a 25 per side and somehow manage to unrack it between the two of them. I cringed watching it, knowing that if he went any lower than the two inches (at best) that he was pressing it, him and his spotter together would have no chance of getting it off him.

    Why are people so fucking stupid?

    if you're adding 5 lbs a week to your bench, you're bench #s are increasing at a pretty fast clip.
